App Store Hits 1,000,000 (1 Million) Apps!

Apple App Store still favourite among developers.
Apple's App Store has a reputation for being the best source of apps out there, and they have bolstered this by surpassing one million apps. The App Store hosts a wide variety of content from games to books and productivity apps. Apple announced at their iPhone 5 event only two months ago they had over 700,000, so a huge influx of apps have hit the store recently.

This new figure of 'created apps' is believed to include all the apps submitted to Apple but have not yet been accepted. Nevertheless, this is a huge milestone to achieve and helps Apple to keep the top spot in mobile devices, as many people base their buying needs on a comprehensive supply of apps.

Another great thing is that much like the iPad, we are seeing developers creating dedicated apps to the iPhone 5's bigger display. Many apps such as YouTube still have not updated their code to support the bigger screen, but should just be a matter of time.
